This is a long post, to describe the problem, please be patient!
We have been having a weird problem with our internet connection here at work:
We have verizon/fairpoint DSL and a Linksys WRV210 Business router. We have a mix of people connected wirelessly and hardwired. Both the modem and router have been replaced since this problem began.
On the majority of days there are 3-4 people here and connected. this problem is the same through out all the computers, running chrome, IE and Firefox web browsers...
When the problem occurs
We can be streaming radio from the existing connection, and be able to send and receive emails through outlook, to an outside email server.
If I am on a webpage, say OCN, I can continue to surf within OCN, but outside hosted pictures do no show up, and any external links show up dead.
I can stay connect to gmail, chat in the gmail chat, send and receive emails in it, etc...
I can also perform a google search, get results, but then when I click one of those links, I get a page cannot be displayed error. This same error occurs when I type a direct address in to a new page I may not have visited recently.
So essentially we still have an active connection (outlook, streaming radio, and gmail open) but we cant surf anywhere else.
Problem is temporarily resolved by resetting the router.
Any ideas? we have been battling this for months now... the ISP is useless, Linksys/Cisco was only a step above useless...
gone through the router, cant find any limiting factors.
Any ideas as to what this could be, or what the fix would be? thanks, Sorry again for the long winded post
